Americans spend the majority of their day at work, averaging 8.8 hours in the office. While you supply your employees with everything they need to succeed and run your business more efficiently, you may have overlooked a critical service that can assist you further. Read about the benefits of a professional commercial cleaning service to save money and raise morale, and why your business should invest in a high-quality cleaning from Colors Professional Floor Care.
Does your business have carpet? Is your bathroom tile clean? Do you have employees or customers with asthma and allergies? Is your workplace pet-friendly? Hiring a professional cleaning company to thoroughly clean your business is the solution to all of these issues and more, ultimately making sure your building is clean, healthy, and cost-efficient.
A SAFER, HEALTHIER WORK ENVIRONMENT
The EPA states that the average American spends roughly 93% of their life indoors where the concentration of pollutants is regularly two to five times higher than outdoor concentrations. Serious symptoms can arise after exposure to indoor air pollutants such as asthma, dizziness, fatigue, respiratory diseases, and even debilitating cases of heart disease and cancer. If you want to provide a safe, healthy environment in which your employees can work, it is imperative that you have fresh, clean air.
At Colors Professional Floor Care, we are professionally trained to remove common allergens and limit the spread of disease through a deep-cleaning process of carpet, hardwood, air duct systems, tile & grout and more. Employees and customers carry allergens and irritants from home to the workplace, including pet hair, personal care products, dust, and other pollutants into the building. Removing all harmful contamination agents on a regular basis via frequent floor and ventilation cleaning is essential in keeping your indoor business air quality fresh and clean, as well as keeping your employees functioning at peak performance.
The Centers for Disease Control states that if HVAC systems are not properly maintained and cleaned on a regular basis, they can act as a source of microbial growth, pollutants, and odor concerns. To this end, the National Air Duct Cleaning Association recommends yearly inspections in order to maintain and improve their air handling units and supply ducts.
IMPROVE COMPANY MORALE
Employees react to a clean environment with an increased focus and positive attitude due to the fact that they are less likely to become distracted in a cluttered and unsanitary workspace. An unclean office becomes a breeding ground for micro-organisms and irritants that cause extreme sickness in employees, forcing the average employee to take nine days of absence every year. The growth of harmful microbes and poor personal hygiene practices increase the risk of employees catching contagious illnesses which directly affect their productivity, attention, and efficiency.
Many modern companies such as Facebook and Google invest heavily in maintaining their office environment and equipment as a method to retain employee and customer commitment. The effects of a dirty workspace are apparent, as 64% of employees believe that their unclean environment negatively impacted their well-being. According to NADCA 20% of all illnesses are caused by or impacted by polluted indoor air, and one out of every six people who suffer from allergies do so in direct correlation to bacteria in the air duct systems.
Which would you rather walk into: a business that has stained carpets, shoddy bathroom tile, and air ducts covered in dust, or a building that looks pristine, smells pleasant and fresh, and is obviously well-maintained? The image you project to your customers and employees is an important factor in presenting the look and feel of your business. A shabby office appearance will create a distinct impression that your business produces shabby work and services. A neat, clean, and sanitary building with fresh air and vibrant flooring will impress clients and employees alike when visiting, as well as boost confidence in your business services and products.
Professionally cleaning your floors will remove the dirt, bacteria, and other contaminants from your workplace, allowing you to see and smell a noticeable difference in the overall look and feel of your flooring and air ducts. Colors Professional Floor Care offers commercial-level deep-cleaning services for your place of business so that you can focus on your work and clients – leave the grime to us!
MASSIVE COST SAVINGS.
Professional floor cleaning services thoroughly treat and sanitize carpet to remove the buildup of airborne pollutants and dirt, ensuring that your carpet remains healthy and its life is prolonged. Carpets trap airborne pollutants and stains, which can attract more soiling and allergens over time. An entirely new carpet may have to be installed if left untreated, which on average can range between $7 and $12 per square foot in installation alone. Regularly scheduled carpet cleaning prevents the growth of mold and allergens, increasing the life of carpets significantly and protecting the carpet from damage in order to protect your flooring investment.
These same air pollutants cling to and saturate your HVAC systems, preventing airflow and causing your system to work harder. A buildup of as little as .42 inches of dust and dirt on a heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease of efficiency by as much as 21 percent. Years of build-up hinders the flow and places strain on your HVAC system, making it far less efficient and more costly to upkeep. Clean HVAC systems reduce energy costs by over 30 percent!
